The Higuerón Hotel also has an agreement with Unicaja, so the teams that play against the Málaga team in the Champions League stay there. Because of this and the collaboration with the Training Center, the rooms are adapted for very tall people with extra-large 2.10 metre beds. Recently, in addition to the NBPA players, it has also hosted the Chinese national team.
An elite sports programme
In addition to the NBA players, the Higuerón Resort is also accommodating the athletes of the Triangular Tournament, made up of the Spanish, Slovenian and USA national teams. This Centenary Tournament starts today and will run until 13 August at the Palacio de Deportes Martín Carpena in Málaga, with a programme of friendly matches that serve as preparation for the World Championship.
This is the most attractive international event of all those taking place prior to the world competition, which is to be held in Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia. Not surprisingly, these teams' top-notch squads spark great expectation among basketball fans.
With regard to beach volleyball, Higuerón Resort in Fuengirola will once again be the venue for the Spanish Beach Volleyball Championships, which will take place from 31 August to 3 September, pitting the country's best beach volleyball pairs against each other as they battle it out for the title of national champions.
The event, organized by Madison Sports Marketing and the Royal Spanish Volleyball Federation (RFEVB), has over its decade of existence become an unmissable event for fans of the sport, bringing together the top players of the moment and fans from all over the country.

Higuerón Resort will not only be the resting place for these professionals, but they will also carry out their training sessions at the hotel. The resort has managed to specialise in this type of client that requires very special services, catering to these sports stars thanks to the comprehensive excellence of its proposal.
